Triple Eight Distillery
Triple Eight Distillery has been making rum in Nantucket, Massachusetts since 2003. These are the rums they’re currently producing:
Hurricane Rum, a blend of rum that’s distilled by Triple Eight Distillery and imported rums from various Central American and Caribbean distilleries. The Triple Eight rum has a sucanat cane sugar, evaporated cane juice, and molasses base with a long fermentation period of up to three weeks. They experiment with different distillation methods for the rum, including double pot still, column still, and pot and column still. Both the Triple Eight rum and the imported rums are aged in used bourbon barrels on Nantucket. Each batch of Hurricane Rum is a blend of these rums from an average of 10 barrels that range from four to twelve years old. The blend is diluted to 88.8 proof with Nantucket water (from a sole source aquifer) and bottled.
